Palms of North Carolina


Author(s):
Abstract:
Palms are a symbol for the tropics. Along the East Coast, these trees reach their northern limit in North Carolina. The state can claim two species of native palms -- the dwarf palmetto on Cape Hatteras and the cabbage palm on Bald Head Island. Perry describes the palms and discusses differences between palms and the state's other common trees.
